I saw this show rather by accident and I love it. It is a fun, adventuresome cooking show. I like the fact that Chef Irvine gives lots of little tidbits throughout the show, things that are not necessarily common knowledge or that can be found in a cookbook. They are the kind of tidbits that if you come from a cooking family , that your grandmother would give you, such as if you want a richer cake use a cup of pudding , but is no where to be found in s standard cookbook. I also like the show because you can see his passion and his love for cooking. He is hard on his helpers, but he also gives credit where credit is due. He compliments s the people that help him locally, he hugs them when he is finished, he says thank you and while he is a little abrupt while working, he really comes through and gives kudos after; I like the fact, that it is a fun, adventurous show that has my five year old, who is nearly six wanting to learn more about cooking. I grew up cooking with my mother and grandmother and have five generations of recipes in a cookbook that is handed down and I really wanted her to be interested in cooking. She has always liked the baking but cooking really wasn't interesting, but since we started watching Dinner Impossible, she is thrilled and wants to help me cook everything from breakfast to dinner. She wants to crack eggs, measure, see how it is done and is asking questions on why you do it this way rather than that. I just found that FOod Network puts all of the recipes on the website, so now we are going to try some more of those. SHe is willing to try foods that she normally will not eat because she saw him make them and she wants to make them, but the rule is that we eat whatever we make. Anyway, it is a very watchable TV show. It is entertainment and it is educational. I love it and I respect Chef Irvine.
